Review for Pratham USA, Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

truly amazing!what the government of India has been talking about but has been unsuccessful in achieving___eliminating illiteracy in India, is being accomplished by this NGO with a very simple,scalable and low cost approach. Pratham sends teachers to the slums where kids are unlikely to ever get an education and through innovative techniques, teaches young children to read and do simple arithmetic and thus creates a thirst for knowledge. i have personally visited some of the slums and observed classes being conducted. the children were eager to learn and there was hope in thier eyes instead of the despair we see when they are instead begging. Pratham will succeed where the government has failed-----eliminate illiteracy in India!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

provide basic literacy program to over 800,000 kids and give them hope for a better future instead of a life of ignorance and despair
